Event Details


The shadowy alleys and darkest dive saloons of Old New York City are born again by the ultimate lady of the night, Lucy Maunder (Matilda, Beautiful, Grease, Pippin,  Fun Home) and Musical Director extraordinaire Daniel Edmonds as they defiantly unplug and reboot the decadence and danger of last century's greatest song writer... Irving Berlin. Come to a Honky Tonk Palace of broken dreams and melodied memories of...Blue Skies, Alexander's Rag Time Band, Puttin' On The Ritz, What'll I Do?, How Deep Is The Ocean?and I Love A Piano.

Lucy Maunder is exquisite. - timeoutsydney.com.au

Maunder sings most attractively with a velvety lower register and works gracefully. A model of sensual intelligence and her singing is very fine. - Sydney Morning Herald

Songs in The Key of Black is a love letter. To Irving, from Lucy. - crikey.com.au

It takes a certain indefinable quality to grab your audience and hold them spellbound on the rise and fall of your voice... It's called star power... - AussieTheatre.com
